On Oct. 3, 2014, manufacturers around the nation will open their doors to the public and host events highlighting the importance of manufacturing to people's everyday lives. Recognizing the importance of the grassroots initiative known as Manufacturing Day, Shell Lubricants stepped up its commitment by becoming the sole platinum sponsor.
"Shell Lubricants hopes that by sponsoring Manufacturing Day, people will not only learn more about what we do, but become part of this critically important industry," said Jacqueline Gates, industrial marketing manager at Shell Lubricants. "We recognize that people simply do not fully understand what the manufacturing industry does and the benefits it offers."
In recognition of Manufacturing Day and to help raise awareness of the third annual event, the Manufacturing Day logo will be placed on the deck lid of the No. 22 Shell-Pennzoil Ford Fusion® driven by Joey Logano during the Sept. 14 Sprint Cup race in Chicago. Logano's car featured the Manufacturing Day logo at the Chicago race last year as well.
The goal for this year's Manufacturing Day has been set at 1,500 events across the country with at least 50,000 individuals in attendance.
